Last week I spent 2 1/2 hours in the dentist’s chair. What I learned was shocking. There’s the mother Grizzly Bear, the Great White Shark, and Katy, my dental hygenist. All three are vicious and blood thirsty. One of these I have to face again in 6 months…I’m weighing my chances with the bear.
A couple of friends of mine went on a hike along the Appalachian Trail, took a pic. of their packs at Max Patch, NC. They hiked from there 22 miles and 2 days later, to Hot Springs, NC. Then requested a sketch of their pic. While I get a lot of pleasure in sketching, I find it nearly embarrassing to try to capture the beauty of nature. Who can do that??
This is how you do creative. I came across the creative woman Jill Weber a couple months ago and I was so inspired by Jill’s creativity and passion for gardening and obviously life. It made me want to do several things: 1. Watch it again. 2. Go draw something. 3. Thumb thru our seed catalog and plan our garden. 4. Thank God again for so many things that really make life rich.
We make life so very complicated yet producing shallow results. I think my life’s motto has become: “Nothing has changed, God is still longing for someone to just walk with Him in a garden.” Enjoy. I especially liked the little wheel of seed growth!
Eagle’s Nest Outfitters is a very cool company that makes and sells hammocks out of Asheville, North Carolina. A few years ago, someone brought an ENO hammock to camp. Everyone wanted to lay in it. The next year, 2 more showed up. This year, there was a village of hammocks! Here are just a few hanging around–and that is exactly what they’re for: hanging out, and having conversations (That’s when people are around other people and you talk about stuff and share life and laugh. It’s what people did before texting)
Check out their website at: eaglesnestoutfittersinc.com and get a hammock–you won’t regret!
